Issue: 55 | August 2021
Director, Campbell Tickell
As we enter a new phase of the pandemic, with greater freedoms yet remaining unease and uncertainty, we’re probably all – organisations and individuals – grappling with the challenge of how to balance looking ahead and giving shape to a new future with keeping the show on the road in the meantime.
This CT Brief explores some of the important questions and challenges facing organisations in a variety of sectors at this point. Inside, authors explore some of the silver linings of the last year, what organisations can do to support staff and leadership wellbeing and mental health, and how lockdown restrictions have forced organisations to rethink how they engage with customers.
The challenges that lie ahead in terms of housing and climate change are examined, and we report chief executives’ thoughts about how the housing sector should respond to damp and mould issues. There is discussion about how recruitment can be used as a tool to tackle systemic racism, and information about the important work of charity The Black Curriculum, which our team has chosen as one of our charity partners for 2021. Last and by no means least, we hear from the fans and organisations trying to improve the world of football regulation and governance.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading this as much as I have. Do get in touch if you’d like to discuss any of the matters here.
